Yes, I think on FreeBSD we can assume that /usr/local/bin/ld will
always be GNU ld iff the binutils package has been installed from

Hm, I wouldn't bet on that. NetBSD still ships GNU ld in base, and the
ports directory there is /usr/pkg/ by default IIRC. I'm not sure about

The only common part is the fact that all BSDs ship BSD make in base,
and GNU make is gmake, so I'm happy to place this in ts-xen-build
directly (like it's done in patch #2).

I think I prefer to use a ts-xen-build-freebsd wrapper around
ts-xen-build if you are OK with it.
